Grape vine newbie.

Posted: 21/04/2014 at 18:47

you can train them over anything,my grape vine is over an old iron post ,you train two shoots to grow over after planting in a nice rich compost and watering well in summer when fruit grows .You will need to in October to cut back the shoots and take foliage off  before November and the cold comes. if you want big grapes you will have to thin out the grapes ,my vine is 43 years old and still going strong.
